The Media Love to Hate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Excerpt: If you point out that she doesn’t know what she’s talking about in off-the-cuff remarks, you’ll be accused of being some sort of elitist snob who thinks members of Congress should know that the unemployment rate is not low because of people working second jobs, or how many chambers of Congress there are. Members of Congress should also be expected to have a rough approximation of the size of the defense budget, and not miss by $20 trillion or so. To the best of my recollection, I’ve written about her twice since her primary win in June, and spoken about her a few times on the Three Martini Lunch or other venues. That doesn’t matter; I will inevitably be accused of being “obsessed” with her just for writing this item in today’s newsletter.
